DS-230 Civil Doc (Lost Passport)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My boyfriend is now in the process of submitting his DS-230 package. To give a little background, his case has been openned and closed for a few years now because it was being handled by a attorney who wasn't doing his job right. So documents were supposibly submitted a year or two ago and since NVC hasn't heard back form the attorney they have been closing his case every since. So flash forward he has contacted NVC and now has to submit his DS-230. He is in the process of submitting all his civil documents but losted his passport. He has an appointment with his passport office next week but because it was reported lost there has to be an investigation and that may take 1-3 months to recieve a new passport. NVC has stated they may have some of his previous documents but not sure of what.

My question is, if he has a copy of the biographic data page from the passport he lost should he just submit that with the other documents? The thought is by the time he gets his interview he should have his new passport in hand but in order to speed things up and not wait for the new passport his thoughts are just to send that copy in since it isnt an expired passport. When NVC has the biographic data page from passport what information do they exactly take from that sheet?

Any advise or help would be appreciated. I beileve all they give you at the passport office is a reciept to come pick up your passport when its ready and I dont think NVC excepts that. Thanks.

If u submit form at NVC orginal civil documents, but in passport you don't need to sumit the orginal , photocpy only the biographic page.. Dont submit your whole passport at NVC, as long as the passport u sumit is not expired.. U can submit the old one..
